A Workshop "The Status of 12C(a,y)16O, the 'Holy Grail' of Nuclear Astrophysics" took place on December 15, 2006 at the Kellogg Radiation Laboratory at Caltech, Pasadena, CA. View Details

CARINA-JINA Collaboration on Nuclear Data Compilations for Nucleosythesis Modelling
The goal of the collaboration between CARINA and JINA is to develop an updated and unified nuclear reaction data base for modeling a wide variety of stellar nucleosynthesis scenarios. The first collaboration meeting willl be held at ECT* in Spring 2007. The purpose of this meeting is top develop strategies and techniques to update and eventually merge the presently most important data libraries for astrophysics (KADoNiS, NACRE, REACLIB). More
